    So Peyton has a good game against the Titans, who have obviously quit on their coach, and he gets top honors for was easily at least the third best offensive performance in the conference. Tell me there isn't a bias towards Manning in the league.

    Forget that Brady outperformed Manning against a far superior defense in a blizzard, Darren McFadden deserves the honor far more than Manning does. What did the league decide that since Manning has suck for a month that he is long overdue for the title?

    Darren McFadden deserves that award. How many does Manning need? For God's sake he was the NFC Offensive Player of the Week for the Cowboys the week before!

    He literally only has won the award 62 other times in his career (no exaggeration). The league couldn't have forgone a good, but not the best in the conference performance to give McFadden one?

    I'd even say DeSean Jackson with 210 receiving yards deserved it more than Manning.

    And I'm sure he would have gotten it had he played in the AFC. :D

    I don't know if they have "quit" on Caldwell, but even with all their injuries they seem to be all out of wack and lack focus and direction. IMO that is the responsibility of the coach to correct.

    With that said, if in conversation with Irsay or Polian, Peyton throws Caldwell under the bus (and there are rumors that he did that to Mora) I'd take odds that he doesn't make it to 2011.

    Desean Jackson was targeted 9 times that game. 4 receptions for 210 on 9 targets still means 5 incompletions. He also ran two reverses that were unsuccessfull plays (3rd down, didn't achieve necessary yardage for first down)

    He was talking about the titans quiting, not the colts.

    This is weak sauce compared to the SuperBowl MVP they gave him. The league's infatuation with Peyton Manning is simply laughable.

    Probably play for either the jets or colts for starters

    That he has no claim to the award, because he wasn't even the best WR this week, let alone the best offensive player.

    Which is Better?

    A) 8/10, 150yds, 1TD, 6 1st downs (3 of 3 on 3rd down)

    B) 4/9, 210 yards, 2TD, 1 INT, Runs of 2 yards and 3 yards on 2nd-10 and 3rd-9,and a 15 yard penalty


    I don't know about you, but Player A looks like a slam dunk over player B to me.

    Player A helped his team in 8 plays, and hurt in 2.
    Player B Helped his team in 4 (big) plays, and hurt his team in 8 player (1 a turnover, one a penalty).

    No, he didn't. He had two touchdowns.


    Yes, those 3 long receptions have a lot of value, but so do the multiple incompletions thrown at him on 3rd down. He was directly responsible for multiple drives stalling on 3rd down. Those count too, despite not being visible in the box score.

    Some people in here care waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too much who wins these silly "player of the week" awards. There's only one award I give a rat's ass about who wins:

    If I am not mistaken that award is determined by fan vote - which would explain why you rarely see it go to anybody on the Patriots.

    Unbelievable. Honestly, Manning could win MVP again at this rate.

    Did anyone even watch that game? For all the stats he compiled, Manning was once again off the mark on many throws, including in the red zone. The majority of big plays they had were the result of mistakes on D, and kudos to him for capitalizing, but he certainly didn't outperform Brady, let alone MacFadden who obviously deserved it.

    I don't agree with that either.
